Hello, fellow Fiestans,

It's time once again for our weekly server maintenance! What's been going on since last time?

The snowstorm in Isya continues as the towns become slowly covered in snow. What will your favorite town look like when you log back in? Look forward to it!

With no end in sight to the snow, many of the GMs have huddled inside their homes for warmth. To nobody's surprise, however, Wishbone decided to go hunt in the caves around Isya while looking for server bears. His reasoning? "What, it's warm in those caves!"

Meanwhile, the GMs received a letter from their expedition team in Adealia who is working hard to improve relations with the natives there. Someone needed to go in person to negotiate a large trade. Looking at the snowstorm outside, they decided to draw straws. The losers had to go brave the storm and head to Adealia, and they were... LaRuru and Velfarre! The two quietly packed their bags for the long trip ahead...

What awaits them on the trail to Adealia? You'll be able to find out for yourself soon! Until then, enjoy the snow-filled towns and merriment of the holidays in Fiesta!

To prepare for this maintenance, the servers will be shutting down starting at 10:00pm PST, and the maintenance has an estimated completion time of 1:00am PST, for a total of 3 hours. Check the server announcements located in the Fiesta forums for updates in case the process is completed any sooner (or later).


Changes

- November event quest removed

- 2nd town reskin - see how much the snow has built up!

Misc.

- X-trap update

Errors and Bugs

- Sharpshooter's Blind Shot skill fixed (100% success rate)

Next Major Known Update

- Level cap increase


We'll see you after the patch, Isyans!

Hello, fellow Fiestans,

It's time once again for our weekly server maintenance! What's been going on since last time?

Even though the big Adealian expansion is on its way, the world of Isya continues to evolve! The first thing that you'll notice is the freak snowstorm that has hit all the towns... and just the towns?! We're guessing this is the work of a wizard rumored to live in the northernmost point in Isya who flies overhead only once a year. Nobody has ever gotten a good look at him, but he's always wearing a bright red suit, and the scent of peppermint lingers behind after every sighting.

This wizard, called Canta Slaus by the people, often bestows gifts on the people for their hard work in keeping Isya safe year after year. One of these gifts is a large, decorated tree that he places in each town. These magical trees give various blessings to you if you dance near them! Also, some of the many monsters roaming Isya have been turned into snowmen, just for fun! Go find some and see what they drop!

Additionally, Canta watches over all Isyans, new and old. He noticed some newcomers to the country feeling lost and confused, so he gave each of them a mini-guidebook on how to survive and succeed in Isya. If you can run between Uruga and Roumen blindfolded, you probably won't need it, but luckily this tool tip guide can be toggled off and on in your game settings!

As one final present to the Isyans, the wizard Canta has bestowed something once thought lost: T4 & T5 composition and decomposition skills! GMs Wishbone and Velfarre danced for joy (under the buffing tree!) when they discovered this present. At long last, this chapter in Isyan history has drawn to a close...

You might ask, "where's Kobal been through all this?" Why, out in the forest searching for the perfect tree! Let's hope he's more careful this time than he was last year...

To prepare for this maintenance, the servers will be shutting down starting immediately after the outspark.com site-wide maintenance (estimated 12:00am PST), and the maintenance has an estimated completion time of 3:00am PST, for a total of 3 hours. Check the server announcements located in the Fiesta forums for updates in case the process is completed any sooner (or later). During the site-wide maintenance, forums will be down, so we will be updating players via our Facebook page and Twitter feed.


Changes

- Added missing composition & decomposition skills!  (A new edition of The Wishdom has more details: http://fiesta.outspark.com/news/view/?id=zbn.19541)

- Added user tool tip (like an in-game mini guide): Can be accessed from "Game Options"

- Added Christmas trees to all towns (Roumen, Elderine, Uruga, Alberstol Ruins): Get groovy and dance near the tree for different buffs! (1 buff at a time; for dances 2-5)

- Added the "Mr. Frost" snowman monster: Mr. Frost carries goodies and can be found on 18 different maps. It will spawn up to 3 times on each map

- Changed background music in the towns for added holiday cheer

 

Misc.

- It's snowing in Isya!

 

Errors and Bugs

- Fixed issues with incorrect duration on the following items: Sabertooth mount, Snowman Cap

 

Next Major Known Update

- Level cap increase

 

We'll see you after the patch, Isyans!

Fiesta Guide Part 2: Weddings

So you finally found that special someone. It’s about time! Your grandma was starting to consider a matchmaker from the "old country" as a healthy alternative. How do we know? Let’s just say word gets around. So you want to get hitched? It’s simple; just follow these steps.

STEP 1: Don’t be a cheapskate. Buy a wedding ring from NPC Dreian Uriel in Elderine. 

STEP 2: Propose to the player who takes your breath away, makes you weak in the knees, gives you butterflies or just has the best mini house (ya lousy gold-digger)! We’re not here to judge. Simply target your sweetie, open your inventory and right-click on the engagement ring (make sure you’re close to each other). Enter a proposal message, hold your breath, cross your fingers and click propose.

STEP 3: Hopefully your heart is not smashed by your beloved and your marriage proposal is accepted! If all goes as planned, and both of you decide that you simply cannot live without one another, you crazy kids need to head to the Fiesta Store (and Wedding Packs are on sale today, 12/2!). Each partner must procure one Wedding Application.

STEP 4: Go together to take your Wedding Applications to Dreian Uriel. You must both be in close range, but only one of you needs to talk with her. Select "Apply for Wedding" when you approach her. This will put you on the official registry of weddings, but if there is a wedding in progress, you’ll have a few extra minutes to get cold feet as you wait for them to finish up. You’re almost there!!!

STEP 5: What good is a Wedding Application if none of your friends are there to share your special day? Dreian Uriel will replace your Wedding Applications with Wedding Invitations. Both of you get to invite 15 people for a total of 30 wedding guests. You have only 20 minutes to give out all of your invitations before you are warped to the Blessed Garden for your ceremony.

STEP 6: In the Blessed Garden, your guests will need to check in with Dreian Uriel and select Join Wedding. After 5 minutes, your guests are warped to their area; you and your sweetcheeks will begin your stroll to the altar. Get ready for the ceremony!

STEP 7: Dreian Uriel will read the vows; be sure to listen to the Pledge Book, too. Yes, you read that correctly. There is a talking book! At the end of the ceremony, click on the Pledge Book to finalize your wedding and get ready to par-tay!

STEP 8: Now that you and sugarlips are married, you and your guests can get wild for 5 minutes in the Blessed Garden before being teleported back to Elderine.

STEP 9: Congratulations! As a wedding gift, both of you will receive a Power of Love buff, a spell to summon your spouse and a permanent wedding pet. Not too shabby, huh? Enjoy the married life! Each time you are in a party together, your stats will increase by 5 percent.

IMPORTANT TIPS:

There is nothing like cleaning up after your wedding pet together to really find marital bliss. Keep in mind that in order to receive your wedding pet you must have at least one free inventory slot. If your inventory is full, the wedding pet can’t be delivered, and you will lose it – forever!

Leave the shopping for later! You should have nothing but your special someone on your mind. If you’re in a vendor shop at the start of the wedding quest, you won’t be able to warp to the altar. Kinda bad form, no?

That's all you need to know to get hitched in Fiesta Online! We wish you and your beloved all the best!
